The Khursaniyah project includes facilities to process and stabilize 500,000 bpd of Arabian Light crude oil blend from the Abu Hadriya, Fadhili and Khursaniyah fields and a grassroots gas plant to process 1 billion scfd of associated gas. The facility also has the capacity to inject 1.1 million bpd of non-potable water for reservoir pressure maintenance. Oil production commenced in August 2008 with the startup of the first train of the producing facility.
The project included the construction of two trains of gas conditioning and ethane and NGL recovery with a total capacity of one billion standard cubic feet a day of sour gas. The facilities will also produce 560 million standard cubic feet a day of sales gas and 300,000bpd of ethane and NGL and 1,800t of sulphur. The design and construction of the facilities themselves on the 49km² site was fast tracked cutting 12 months off the building process schedule.
A consortium of Bechtel Overseas of London and Technip of Rome was selected to carry out Front End Engineering as well as execute the construction.
